CBJ Covid 19 Haftorah
Vayikra וַיִּקְרָא
Mar 25, 2020 Season 1 Episode 2

Congregation B'nai Jeshurun (CBJ) of Staten Island VP of Ritual and DH (Designated Haftorah reader) Roy Moskowitz chants the Haftorah or reading from the prophets (0ff key) for the first Parsha or section of Leviticus, Parsha Vayikra (וַיִּקְרָא).  Most weeks (last week was an exception), the Haftorah shares something with the weeks's parsha or reading from the first five Old Testament books.  Sometimes they share a major narrative point, sometimes the connection is more spurious. 

The Haftorah is Isaiah 43:21-4:23 and discusses Temple sacrifices as did the parsha.  Following the Haftorah and accompanying blessing chanting, Moskowitz then reads the English translation from the Etz Chaim (Tree of Life) Chomish or Bible.  He makes plenty of mistakes as he does most Saturday and Jewish Holiday morning services.  Moskowitz says leaving them in gives the listener a more authentic experience since there are no do overs during normal services.
